Can I sue the father of my child if he won’t provide support ?
The father of my child just blocked me over the phone and denied to take full responsibility of the baby. He want me to do the abortion but I refuse to do so, can I sue him? Thank you
You can file just before the child is born or right after. Assuming you are not married to the father, you would have to file for paternity first. After paternity is established, the case would automatically turn into a child support case.

Yes, you can "sue" him in Family Court and seek that he take a paternity test and pay you child support. This is generally called a Petition for Child Support or a Paternity Petition in New York Family Courts located in every county in the State of New York.
The Court personnel should be able to walk you through the process if you cant retain an attorney.
You don't sue him, you simply go to the Family Court in the county where you live and ask for child support. Do not delay as it will be retroactive to the day you apply for child support. Good luck!
Yes you can. It's called seeking child support. Get with a NY family law attorney ASAP.
